Happy Monday! It's the last Monday in September. Where does the time go? Hope your enjoying the start of our Fall weather. One of my brother-in-laws celebrated his birthday last week, so I made him this birthday card. I have a hard time making masculine cards. I want to add ribbon, flowers, bling and bright pretty paper....(laughing) All the fun stuff on a card. I always tend to lean towards browns and blacks when I make a card for the guys. I guess I could use blues and grays...
All the paper was from my scrap pile.
The only stamp I used was the Ferris
Wheel from SU "Feeling Sentimental"
(It was one of the stamps set I got for a buck)
And the Happy Birthday.

I inked distressed all the edges. 

I used foam adhesive on the bottom squares.
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you have a super great day!

Wedding Card

Happy Monday. We had a out-of-town Wedding last week. This is the card I made.
I used Heartfelt Creation's die cuts. 

Each corner is a separate die cut.  I
glued them into each corner. I then cut
a different floral die cut and added it
to the middle. 

I added glittered hearts, ribbon and a flower.

Inside the card
Have a wonderful week!

Remembering 9/11

Happy Monday! How is everyone doing today? I have been a busy bee with the grandchildren, my TOPS group and a trip to Washington DC and New York City.  After visiting the 9/11 memorial in person, I realize life is short and we need to be kind to everyone around us. Cherish our families and friends everyday! Today I am sharing some butterfly cards I made for a few of my TOPS friends. We are doing a butterfly contest so I thought the butterfly cards would be perfect. 
I used a butterfly embossing folder for the
white background. 

I stamped and cut out lots of butterflies.
I added some glitter to make them sparkle. 

I made them 3-D by adding butterflies
on top of each other. 
Hope your week is filled with beautiful butterflies!

Pirate Theme

Happy Monday! Can't believe this is the last Monday of August. Today, I am sharing some gift card holders I made for my TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) group. We had our new Officers Installation and I usually make all the themed props. This year I didn't have the time. I wanted to make something so I made gift card holders. 
This is the first one I made. I got the instructions


These are the ones I made for my TOPS
group. The theme was "Pirates" I bought
Hats, Patches, Mustaches, and treasure boxes

for the installation.

Inside the gift card holders. 

Here we are in our pirate gear.
Thank you for sharing some of your time with me today! Have a wonderful week!

Great Buys

Happy Monday! On August 5th the annual "De-Stash" sale was held at the Jewish Community Center.  Of course my neighbor Heather and I went.  We told ourselves we need nothing, but it won't hurt to just go look. Are you all laughing by now? Of course, we didn't just go look, we bought. We got there early and as we were standing in line a lady came up and asked if there was a fee to go inside. The lady in front of us said "No, it's free to enter but it cost you to leave".....LOL So true!!! 
These are the items I purchased. The prices
 were so good I couldn't pass them up 

This was my best buy. For one dollar per bag
I received Stamp n Up: ink pad,  the re-inker,
stamp set,  2 rolls of ribbon, card stock
and marker. Can you believe that?
I got the last two. The lady before me
had purchased five of them. 

The SU Stamp sets were only $1.00 each. I got
10 ink pads (all but 2 brand new) for $5.00.
This is Heather's stuff.  She got some really good
deals also. 

The yarn was .25¢ each. 
We had so much fun and what GREAT deals!!  We saw a few of our crafting and sewing friends there. I am sure you got some great deals too. Happy Crafting and sewing!
